88 Baron van Reede Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We stayed in room 4. The room was beautifully decorated and well equipped with air conditioner, fridge (honesty bar) and tea/coffee facilities.
Clean, crisp linen smelled good. Good quality bath sheets also crisp and fresh. The room was impeccably clean and comfortable.
When we arrived we were immediately greeted by Zoe. Zoe was so welcoming and sincere that we immediately felt at home. She offered to help with our luggage and offered a drink when we were settled in. She gave us lots of information about things to do and places to eat and just seemed to share conversation as if we were old friends.
We met Huw in the evening and he was also a very pleasant person with a great sense of humor. He gave us advice on the passes we were planning to drive the following day. During our stay Huw and Zoe made an effort to talk to all the guest and get to know them personally and after each day you were asked with genuine interest how your day was. Huw and Zoe go the extra mile to make your stay as pleasant as possible and they are really down to earth people. Warming our leftover food and even dishing it up for us was done with pleasure. Breakfast was well prepared and Huw asked us our second day if we would like something else for breakfast and he made delicious omelets for us. At Breakfast we were always asked if we wanted anything more so no chance of going hungry here :) Huw’s muffins are the best in town and we were even offered to take some for the road :) Definitely worth the money spent. They seem to know what is important for guests to feel at home. We left feeling like we’ve made new friends. Highly recommended!

We passed one night at Baron van Reede and appreciated the warm welcoming of the owners who did everything to make us feel comfortable and give us all the local info we needed.
Centrally located, it's the ideal place to explore the 'city'. Lots of restaurants in walking distance.
Great breakfast. Rooms very clean and nicely decorated.

Huw and Zoe are terrific hosts but also wonderful guides to the area. They are located so that you may park securely and walk to dinner with lots of interesting choices. I loved my suite. Sitting on the terrace and emailing while having a cup of tea was just what I needed after a long drive through the Klein Karoo.

We were extremely happy staying at this wonderful B&B. Zoe and Huw could not have been nicer or more helpful. With the help of their advice we had a fun-packed 2 days around Oudtshoorn. Breakfast was great and the the freshly made cappuccino muffins were delicious!! The room was really nice too. We would definately stay here again. Thank you Zoe and Huw!!

What a totally and utterly unexpected experience - the owners are friendly, incredibly helpful and genuine. And that's not all! Clean and comfortable rooms, a great breakfast - just a shame we couldn't have spent more time there! But we'll be back!
Thanks to Zoe and Huw for a great stay!

It all starts when you check in: the familiar environment and the attention Zoë & Huw give you offering smiles and information about the town and the attractions; the caring atmosphere when they ask you to choose your English breakfast for the next morning that completes the continental buffet with muffins, juices, bread, jam. Then your room with all the facilities and the high standard of cleanliness where you feel at home sipping a tea or a coffee you can make on your own. This friendly feeling accompanies you during all staying until the moment you leave and even after that you still remember this B&B as one of the best places where you may like to go back when in South Africa again.
